Miranda Talks about Fran

Check out this video of Miranda Oldroyd talking about a recent date with Fran.  For competative CrossFitters, benchmark workouts eventually become less dependant on work capacity and more about skilled execution.  Understanding transitions, having a rep plan and knowing where to take rests becomes the primary focus. When you do a benchmark workout or lift, always remember to put in your notes how you can be better next time.

Describe how you could be more efficient in a recent workout or lift.

I've had a couple requests for a paleo crockpot recipe roundup, so here you go.

Since today is cleans, for me, efficiency is quite important with cleans. You only get so many shots, and there is a fine line between not being warm enough, and wearing yourself out on cleans, especially squat cleans. Last time, I could have warmed up more, tall cleans first, very light. Mid hang triple. One or two sets max, light, for triples, probably one. Then singles. I think a big part of succeeding on cleans is your plan on how to get to your pr attempts. What do you guys think? This is maybe my favorite lift.

Mig; GOOD CALL on the crockpot links! I've used mine a few times this winter but not nearly as often as I should, given how easy it makes life.

Efficiency: I've been consciously working at resting sufficiently between attempts, since Jeremy called me on my Speedy Gonzalez ways a few weeks ago, and I think I've finally gotten it down. Being the anal-retentive gal that I am, I do it by checking the wall clock obsessively until 5 minutes have passed since my last set. Hey, it might be a little OCD, but it works.

I think, though, that I could use that time between sets a little better. Instead of just sitting down, I could be stretching or doing some other kind of mobility work, since tight muscles are a serious goat for me.
